Sari Krosinsky has delivered an epic poem in the spirit of the The Bhagavad Gita. Imagine life from the point of view of a God. Time is not a limit, but loving a mortal has an expiration date. My favorite line is “Forever is too long”. Read A God’s Life today! Robert Grant author of Naked Tao and The Nostrum Conspiracy.
The three most powerful words we can speak are: “I am ___,” where we fill in the blank with the third word of our own choosing. We create our lives with this simple incantation. It is a magic spell that works every time, so it is important to be careful how we use it.
There is danger in the careless use of the phrase. For example, saying something like “I am afraid” seems pretty ordinary, but it defines us as being fearful. None of us want to become the thing we fear. It is just as easy to say something like, “I am strong and I will get through this”.
Since you can fill in the blank with any word of your choice, then ask yourself, “What do I want to become?” This is one simple practical application of the creative juice we all have.

Years ago, during a difficult period of my life, I sat in a sweat lodge with a Native American Shaman and listened to his prayers and words of wisdom as sweat poured from me. Sweat Lodge is a sacred practice of cleansing and reconnection with spirit. The shaman began with a simple prayer, “Oh Great Spirit, I come to you with a grateful heart and a prayer for those I love.” This simple prayer sets a tone of gratitude and respect for the power of giving.
If we aren’t careful, we sometimes find ourselves thinking too much about the things missing from our lives. If left unchecked, this pattern of thinking creates a culture of scarcity. The simple solution is to shift our thoughts to the many things we have to be grateful for. Focusing on these riches has the power to wipe away all thoughts of scarcity.
Knowing our true measure of wealth makes it much easier to shift our thoughts to the needs of those we love. There is tremendous healing power in acts of service to those we love.
Rebecca and I have much in common, but there is one thing we differ on. Rebecca loves the feel of a book in her hands. She wants to curl up next to the fire and turn pages. Me, well, I love that too, but I also embrace new technology. I think it is amazing that our smartphones can do many things, including carry a small library of eBooks.
Today’s picture is The Nostrum Conspiracy on an Android 6s smartphone. It is a joy to read a book on this phone, but sadly Rebecca clings to paper.
Our home is full of books. We love them and they spill off the shelves and find themselves in stacks next to the bed, on the coffee table and even on the kitchen counter. I love that, but I also love standing in the grocery line and reading a chapter on my phone.
The 21st century has brought us many wonders and one of them is the choice of paper or plastic. So friends, what do you prefer, eBooks or paper?

A Snippet of The Nostrum Conspiracy
“What do you think marriage is?” asked Marguerite.
The lawyer in me spoke up and said, “It’s a legal binding agreement to share one’s life and worldly goods with another person.”
Marguerite raised an eyebrow, but said nothing. Instead she waited for more. I felt like there was something better inside of me to give. It was something more real than the legal bullshit I had just spouted. I swallowed. Marguerite wanted more than legalese and Ginny was looking crushed by my comments.
“It’s completion,” I said. “Like closing a circle. Ginny completes me.”
Marguerite nodded her approval.
“Dude,” said Eric softly.
Camo Girl dabbed at a tear in the corner of her eye.
Pony Tail gripped my shoulder and said softly, “Yes.”
Ginny closed the gap between us in two quick steps. At first I thought she was going to throw her arms around me, but she stopped just short and held me with her eyes.
I liked what I saw in Ginny’s eyes and would have been content to gaze into them, but slowly she stretched a hand to my cheek and caressed it ever so lightly with the back of her finger tips. A spark of electricity crackled between us and some of the tension I had been carrying around for the last few days melted away.
Ginny’s breath quickened. In anticipation of her touch, my breathing matched pace with hers. I wasn’t disappointed. She curled her hand behind my neck and then pulled me into a kiss. I had never experienced anything like it. The kiss filled an ocean of loneliness with love and I knew that I would never be the same.
When Plato wrote nearly 2,400 years ago that love is nothing more than the desire to be whole again, the concept of soul mates was already ancient. In an age when divorce rates are disturbingly high, it is comforting to know that our ancestors also longed for love’s completion. Fairy tales have endured because their message touches a part of us that won’t give up hope. Happily ever after is within our grasp. Keep the faith that you can and will be whole again. Love’s promise is close at hand.
Author Interview of Robert Grant
On the eve of the publication of Robert Grant’s second book, The Nostrum Conspiracy, Diamante Lavendar interviewed Robert for her blog at http://diamantelavendar.com/.
Here is a brief excerpt from her interview:
- What prompted you to write your book?
As long as I can remember, I wanted to be a writer. Like many young people who are called to a creative life, I had to contend with well-meaning friends and family members who discouraged it. While I have spent most of my career as a successful attorney, I never forgot my dream. In the meantime, I pursued many other interests and was fortunate enough to have some amazing adventures. One of those interests was martial arts. I spent many years studying and teaching Chinese Internal Martial Arts. Before his death, I promised my teacher I would someday write that book I always wanted to write and began to develop a story idea that pitted a young lawyer/martial artist against a powerful pharmaceutical company in a conflict over a miracle cure. The hero wants to ensure the cure is freely available to everyone, but powerful enemies want to suppress it.
